Workers are giving the Bellingham Theatre Guild’s playhouse a facelift —and a literal lift up – as part of a $1 million capital improvement campaign for the historic building.
Crews with VanderVeen House Moving used jacks Monday, July 18, to raise one side of the playhouse, built in 1902, to install a new foundation at the 1600 H St. site. Crews also will also build a new main entry with an elevator.
The American Association of Community Theatre recently awarded its second annual Diamond Crown Organization Award to the guild at a ceremony in New York City on July 9. The award recognizes BTG’s 87 years of continuous operation and the major facility improvements the guild is implementing this summer.
